Two years after rocking a luxe fox-fur dress to the Met Gala, Rihanna decided to reminisce a bit and post a video from that night to Instagram.

While most fans loved the throwback clip, one called out the “No Love Allowed” singer for rocking the fur, saying she doesn’t need to prove her wealth by wearing “animal’s skin.”

Rihanna is far from the first celeb to be called out by PETA and its supporters for rocking fur, leather and any other animal-sourced fabric.

PETA has such a distaste for the socialite they went so far as to release this statement: "Kim is a commodity, she is paid to wear things like fur, a particular makeup, or to shake hands with questionable people, so she is not a good example to a child or anyone else of how to show a social conscience."
